With one of the youngest populations in the world, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is experiencing social, economic, and political transformations driven by the needs of young people. GNG opened a regional office in Amman, Jordan in 2013 to provide opportunities to MENA youth to engage meaningfully with peers around the world. As MENA economies become more knowledge-intensive, the skills youth need to succeed have changed. GNG's programs address the skills identified by employers as imperative in these shifting economies: communication across difference, critical thinking and analysis, interpersonal skills, and actionable curiosity.
GNG is committed to serving classrooms and schools in diverse, rural and urban, and under-resourced communities. GNG partners with local teacher associations, youth development centers, and school networks to implement its programs in the region.
Young people lack the opportunities to meaningfully and productively engage with difference in a world that is undergoing vast social, cultural, technological, and economic transformation.
Global Nomads Group's (GNG) flagship programming was piloted in Amman, Jordan in 2015. GNG connects middle- and high-school students in the MENA region with partner classrooms in the U.S. through virtual exchange and interactive curricula. By providing an online platform for youth to interact and engage with different perspectives, we help students break down stereotypes, address community challenges, develop 21st century skills, and explore what it means to be a global citizen.
Global Nomads Group (GNG) organized a video conference in cooperation with Save the Children – Jordan. The event was part of a two-day series of video-conferencing held over the course of two weeks between American and Syrian students to exchange viewpoints on the major issues facing their countries.
Global Nomads Group (GNG) gathered 45 youth ambassadors from Jordan, USA and Morocco in a live webcast to share their stories of resilience and to discuss how the Syrian crisis has impacted on young people around the world.
Global Nomads Group (GNG) launched the “Campfire” exchange program around four years ago and has brought educators from Jordan, Morocco and the US to promote global citizenship, empathy and action-oriented projects.
Campfire: Collaborating Classrooms, a middle and high school-based program launched by Global Nomads Group (GNG), gives youth worldwide opportunities to engage with difference, harness the power of their voice, and experience deep empathy, through virtual exchanges aimed at promoting meaningful connections.
